KFC's New Training Video is a VR Nightmare
KFC is using virtual reality to torture/train its employees, Eater reports. Using Oculus Rift headsets, trainees are placed into a virtual "escape room" where they have to learn how to make KFC Original Recipe Chicken. A mildly sinister Colonel Sanders talks them through the process. Everything in the room has the creepy, retro futuristic vibe of a BioShock game. It's what a training video directed by David Lynch might look like. KFC says the VR exercise trains workers to cook chicken in just 10 minutes, instead of the 25 minutes it normally takes to learn in real life.
